Would it be my parents? No, they lived too far away and the topic was still — even after almost ten years — a little too sensitive. Maybe the first person I came out to? We were two acne-prone teens drinking a cheap bottle of sparkling wine in a public toilet when I booted myself out the closet. But no — she was out of town.
See all year-end lists. First, just the sheer number of films that were available to us. Second, the production value of these films. Lesbian and bisexual movies have always been notoriously underfunded and it shows in areas as small as sound design and as big as acting. The caliber of talent that was drawn to making lesbian and bisexual movies this year is frankly unbelievable. Finally — and in my opinion most remarkable — is the fact that none of the movies on this list trip over the same sad tropes that have been plaguing our film canon for ever.
In retrospect, watching the film proves to be a good idea. Sonam plays Sweety, a girl from Moga, a small town in Punjab. Dad Anil Kapoor plays a garment manufacturer. Other members of the house include a conservative grandmother, hot-headed brother, a friendly cook and a man Friday.
I will talk about the first East and Central European mainstream film with two openly lesbian protagnists. Lesbian Inspiration as a campaign was inviting artists, writers, scholars, activists to share their experiences. In the few sketches the character tells us both how she is present everywhere since, a lesbian can be everywhere, for example both on the left and the right side of political arena , and how she wants to do everything what other people do, even though she feels discriminated and judged.
